Rivers Month Photo Contest

June is National Rivers Month and here at Massachusetts Rivers Alliance, that’s kind of a big deal. We love rivers, the wild and scenic ones and the hip urban ones too. We love the animals that live in and near them and what rivers mean to our families. So to celebrate this great month, we want you to show us your favorite Massachusetts river pics and make sure to tag them #MyMassRiver! Send us your favorite river otter, bestie on a kayak and everything in between. Full details of the rules are listed below. See you on the water!
